's being removed from office, as a single side note. i mean, bill clinton went through -- he was keel hauled. >> yeah, yeah. >> this guy get a single side note. >> just a pesky asterisk. but, you know, politicians and presidents for years in washington have been using david petraeus as cover. if you can get underneath -- >> republicans said that name over and over. >> wrap yourself in the petraeus flag and you got immunity from almost anything. >> what is president obama worried about petraeus? >> i think it's -- i think he's being gracious now. i think maybe buyer's remorse, some people once you get into the details of this whacky situation, they're thinking maybe he should have stuck with him, maybe everything moved too fast, maybe he's -- he did what he did but maybe he's the victim -- >> before you jump to that, and i am -- the older i get the more leaning i get towards these -- >> meaning -- >> if it got out he had this affair with the reporter and also got out that the president knowing about it had kept him in office, what would that have been like? >> that would have been bad.
-- you won't do it again. >> tell the country that? >> tell the country. it's what bill clinton did. >> but he was impeached. >> under a little pressure. >> let's go to the latest developments in this. mrs. kelley, jill kelley, she's married, she was the one involved in being apparently -- she was scaring this other woman who was having the affair with petraeus. she complained to an fbi agent. this is where it became official. complained, jill kelley, complained to an fbi agent -- >> who was a friend of hers. >> who was being harassed. then she does this call. she called 911 one week complaining, that was jill kelley, tried to invoke diplomatic privilege to get the press off her lawn. let's listen to this. this is a little strange. >> i am an honorary consul-general, so i have inviolatability so they should not be to cross my property. i don't know if you want to get diplomatic protection involved as well? but it's against the law to cross my property. >> this is getting more kato kaling every day. >> that phone call replaced -- >> was she writing, claiming diplomatic immunity from
to do? he has four years left. we saw with ronald reagan and bill clinton. with a second term and a better economy, you can achieve a lot and become quite popular in the process? does obama have that in him? what do you want him to do now that he has four more years? >> the big thing he has going for him, he has four years he doesn't have to worry about getting re-elected. they start these elections about two years ahead of time usually. and that's where their focus goes on how do i keep doing this job, whether i'm a senator, congressman, or whatever it is, if you are a career politician, you always look out for yourself first. when the president's in this position, having been elected a second time, now he has nothing to lose. >> where do you you this he's been weak and where does he need to be stronger? >> i think he's been weak. my son was a huge obama supporter until obama ordered that american's death with the drone and then he lost my son. my son was so offended that a president could kill a united states citizen without a trial, without anything like that. and my belief
pressed obama his response was, well, under bill clinton there was great economic prosperity. the whole answer of obama is about bill clinton and now nifty the economy was under him. i got to tell you i would have given a limb to see mitt romney turn to the president and say, mr. president, i knew bill clinton. [laughter] our ideas work, their ideas don't. the last four years our economy has grown 1.5% a year. that is less than half the historical average. for 70 years, we have averaged 3.3% growth a year. now, this president is fond of saying he inherited the worst economy in the history of the universe. [laughter] >> and everything by the way, is george w bush's fault. he doesn't have much historical memory when he makes that argument. any of all remember 1978, 1979, double-digit unemployment, 22% interest rates, gas lines, stagflation. in 1980, a very, very different president got elected. ronald reagan like barack obama inherited a struggling economy. and reagan implemented policies 180 degrees opposite those of obama. instead of jacking up taxes, he slashed taxes. instead of explod
of our collective deliberations. as bill clinton might say, it's just arithmetic. in fact, this situation of a divided government has only two possible outcomes -- action based upon good faith compromise or no action resulting from political dead lock, and in my position, the latter, is not acceptable to the people of maine and to the people of the united states. we must find a way to act, because many of the problems before us, the debt and deficit is probably the best example, have a time fuse. the longer we avoid acting, the worse they get. in this case, no decision is itself a decision, and it is almost undoubtedly the wrong decision. the challenges before us are too great and the stakes are too high to allow partisan differents to keep us from finding common ground even on the most difficult issues, and i hope that in a small way, in a small way i may be able to act as a brim between the parties, an on -- bridge between the parties, an honest broker to help nudge us toward solutions. i talked to more than a dozen senators of both parties in the past three days and have been impressed
the republicans don't agree to raise the top back to where they were when bill clinton left office going over the fiscal cliff? >> i don't see a realistic way to solve this without a recognition. let's see the positive side. it's encouraging use in the leadership recognize we are going to have to generate and that's a good recognition, but you know, we're just at the beginning. we will see how that goes. i agree this is going to be tough. i know the lack of clarity on the resolution is going to be a burden and cause some uncertainty but we have to go through because we are going to govern this country better if we are going to find a better way to make sure we are supporting things that will improve the long-term growth in the country we have to figure out a way to resolve the current divide on these basic questions about the long-term. i think that is worth trying to do. >> well, as you have said and the president said we have to both raise taxes and restrain spending. the president's proposal so far on medicare has been largely limited to the provider side. is the president going to leave h
else. except that money is never coming back and everybody pantages to use to it. >> bill clinton. let's do it. >> bill clinton, 42nd president of the united states his popular appeal nearly provoked house republicans to impeach him for conduct in his personal life, an unprecedented move that would have made a mockery of the u.s. constitution and was therefore quickly dismissed as a level with the time. a self-described new democrat he sets his policies would have been only the second president to face impeachment, a drastic measure that republican leaders immediately dropped as an absurd active in the lofty constitutional standard for impeachment of high crimes and misdemeanors. also self aware enough to realize they're own marital infidelities would have tainted the already dubious legal proceedings. these considerations as well as they share revulsion at the thought of tying up two branches of government for months and diverting millions of taxpayer dollars to a trial the public would quickly unmasked as a political and motivated ploy prompted house leaders to simply allow americans
are it is the money to bring it down to make our akon and remove for word. >> what did bill clinton say? arithmetic. i like that moment that he was pointing out what numbers added up but to the democrats were chanting arithmetic. did just cannot be sound bites. those were real bills that passed. 62/75 boats -- boats. we got it done. on some of those bills after we got it done there was pressure on the house and the group of us supportive of the debt commission report we may not agree with everything but depending on the day 40 are 55 senators meeting off and on to push them through. >> there is a devotion. paul ryan said it is not their intention to raise tax rates. didn't want to agree to the tax hikes how will you work with republicans in the house? this is not what we will negotiate? there has been some change there and speaker boehner but up the olive branch that is the debt negotiations are all about. but look at the tax-cut issue as a major part of the solution and add that into other deductions it is a chunk of change. >> with the press conference . >> guest: i missed the meeting but they passe
just -- what did bight say? -- bill clinton say? >> i liked it because he was on a partisan basis, pointing out what added up and what did not, but they were all chaptering for arrhythmia tick. both sides have to realize it has to add up, and it's not just sound bites on tv. the last thing i say that gives me hope, i marched through the bills, they were real bills that were passed, real sized, complicated bills, 52-75 votes in the u.s. senate. we beat the filibuster and got it done. that should be hope that a debt deal is possible in the senate and on some of the bills, majority of them, after we got them down, there was pressure on the house to get it.pro. there's a group of us supportive of the debt commission report, don't agree with everything in it, but continue to push and meet, and it's somewhere between depending on the day, 40-55 senators or so that's meeting off and on for the lastñ&r yearo push it through. there's a devotion to getting it done in the senate. >> you have senior republicansñr like paul ryan saying it's not their intention to raise tax rates. they don't

that washington isn't about politics. spent if you just listen -- >> what did bill clinton say? >> arithmetic. i like that moment for two reason. he was on a partisan pace and he was pointing out what numbers added up and wanted me but i also like the democrats were all chanting for arithmetic because i think both sides are going to have to realize that this has to add up and it can't just the sound bites on tv. the last thing i was to give me hope, i marched to all those bills. those are real bills that got passed, midsize, confidence. it was only 62-75 votes in the u.s. senate. we beat the filibuster and guided them. so that should give you hope that it didn't do is possible in the senate, and on some of those bills the majority of them, after we got down there was pressure on the house to get it done. there's a group of us have been supportive of the debt commission report, the general framework agreement agree with everything anybody has continued to push and meet. it somewhere between, depending on the day, 40-55 senators are so that's been meeting off and on for the last year to try to pus
